Just under 14-hundred Illinois residents are enrolled for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.  The Department of Health and Human Services says over 106-thousand people enrolled nationwide in the first month.  The majority of those signing up actually enrolled in state-run exchanges available in 14 states, but the federal website handles the marketplace in Illinois.  

An additional 31-thousand people in the state have completed an application but they haven’t purchased a plan.
